How can you tell if there is Damp and Mould in Council Property

Damp and Mould in Council Property will occur in rooms which are warm, moist and highly humid.

The most likely options are the kitchen and bathrooms although you increase the risks if for example you dry your wet clothes in doors or do not open windows very often.

If damp builds up and you report it to your landlord but he fails to rectify the problem you may be able to make a claim for damp.  If the damp builds up to a certain level it could become toxic.
